Red Bull has confirmed their driver line-up for the final test in Bahrain.

Daniel Ricciardo will drive on Thursday and Friday, with Sebastian Vettel taking over duties on Saturday and Sunday.

The third test is the final chance for teams to trial their 2014 cars before the first round of the season in Australia, which takes place from March 14th to 16th.

Red Bull has endured a difficult start to 2014 with reliability issues plaguing the team across the opening two four-day tests.

McLaren driver Kevin Magnussen also confirmed that he will drive on the first and third days of the test for the team, with Jenson Button piloting the MP4-29 on the second and fourth day.

Lotus has confirmed their schedule for the final pre-season test, with Pastor Maldonado running on the opening two days.

Sergio Perez will kick off proceedings for Force India before handing over to Nico Hulkenberg for the final two days.

Max Chilton will drive on the opening and closing days for Marussia, with Jules Bianchi testing on the two middle days. Both drivers will be hoping for increased running after their second test was disrupted by IT problems.
